the economy is looking a little better. so i think obama is really lucky that he got a good jobs report to at least somewhat temper what was a very disappointing debate performance. >> romney signed a pledge that he would not make any tax cuts that with add to the deficit. do you think that left noplace for obama to go? >> well, i think it certainly was a place for romney to go. what he said and what a lot of people have written about for lang time was to eliminate a lot of the special tax benefits and tax entitlements and special tax treatments across the entire code lower tax rates it seems to me, was a very effective political stand. he articulated extremely well as pat said. it was very sub studentive performance. he said it in a very organized and clear way. i think he was extraordinarily more effective than anybody anticipated, and the president, for whatever reason, was just not in the game. >> why was obama thrown off balance? >> i call it the second-term blahs, john. you've seen this happen with other presidents running for reelection. it's the kind of a job where you're consta
in america sounds better than evening in america, the obama campaign says there's that's a low bar. we can do that, too. >> briefly here, you mentioned the idea of a conspiracy theory. this is the white house trying to mix it up. you don't buy that at all. >> not a little bit. bureau of labor statistics is a geeky, wonky organization. i love their website. they just, they're data geeks. i spoke to the labor secretary again to be reassured that even she doesn't see them until the morning of. sometimes, the president's economic adviser gets them the night before because if it's a really bad number, that person can go to the president and say we need to inform the federal reserve chief, but generally speaking, that is not the case. this is, look, i suppose anything's possible. it could even be a calculation error, but it is remarkable that the minute the numbers turn against conservatives, everybody's up in arms saying the books are cooked. >> ethan, you wrote in the spring that what we need the catch up growth. catch up growth. not merely maintenance growth. this is is undeniably good news. we'
of how much better. let's not forget obama promised if he enacted his so-called stimulus, by today, the unemployment rate would be down to 5.5%. so, something's gone wrong. if you look at the minneapolis federal reserve website, there's an interactive feature that allows you to look at all the the business cycles since world war ii. it's the worst gdp performance and jobs perform ann of any president. things are getting better, but at such an anemic rate. >> let's move on. go ahead. jump in. >> you know what the problem was with that promise? they should have never made that. promises get people elected. promises get things passed, so now mitt romney says i'm going to create 12 million jobs over four years. 250,000 jobs a month. a ridiculous claim and what does the obama campaign do because morning in america sounds better than evening in america, the obama campaign says there's that's a low bar. we can do that, too. >> briefly here, you mentioned the idea of a conspiracy theory. this is the white house trying to mix it up. you don't buy that at all. >> not a little bit. bureau of
propose alternatives, and better than president obama does? >> he did both of those, went right at the obama record and something the president declined to talk about himself and went deep on his tax policy and his health policy, so he put some entirely new baseline for the election. >> paul: kim, there are a lot of republicans were willing to start writing off mitt romney if he didn't do welcome. i mean, there really were. and they were worried that his fund raising might fall off and there would be a big problem. so, is there new momentum, new optimism on the republican side? >> no worries about the fund raising dropping off now, i tell you that. i mean, you have not seen this much enthusiasm for mitt romney since he's ever run, going back to 2008. but i think because he went out there and talked about ideas, this is what the republicans have been arguing he needed to do all along because you can't say it's a choice you've got to prove it's a choice. that's what he did in denver. the most important thing he did, he explained the choices very clearly. he talked about things lik
're judging president obama and mitt romney. >> the economy is getting better, more jobs are being created. we aren't where we would like to be. 7.8 is still quite a high unemployment rate. we would like it to be 5 or 4. there was a couple of months in the 1990s when it got under 4. that would be terrific. but we're not there. we dug ourselves a huge hole after the financial crash of 2008. and we had this great recession which took the economy down fast and at the time that obama took over, the economy was in freefall. and since then, it's gotten better. at first, it got worse at a slower rate. that's not a great slogan. but for the last 2 1/2 years, it has gotten steadily better in the sense that jobs have grown every year. every month. >> and sam, when you talk to the obama campaign, the particular way they see the voters who are going to side with them, or at least a lot of them practically swing voters, is what they believe, as alice said, we have a very deep hole to dig out of. we're not there but we're doing as good as we can expect to be doing. and there's been there important psycholog
would have done better against the obama that was debating this week? >> i think so, piers, but, you know, it would sound like i am now trying to rewrite history or i would have done better. you know, i've never tried to do any of that looking back and certainly not in anger or bitterness. but i think it is true that during the 2008 campaign, the president or then-senator obama had no record to defend. and one of the reasons why mitt did so well in this debate was because mitt was, i think, very legitimately attacking his record, whether it be the $90 billion in subsidies for energy or a number of the other things that -- the failure of dodd/frank, and so the president had a record to defend this time. but, one, do not underestimate the president of the united states. he will come back strong. i think mitt has to be prepared for that. and also, as you mentioned, these job numbers will give him a bit of -- or something of a boost today. >> we've got the vp debate coming up. you said about joe biden he's the gift that keeps on giving. are you hoping that he's going to be giving some sp
was making a similar case with a better resume. the case for obama was a political case. why those policies never seemed to change. implied that hillary was part of the problem. that america couldn't afford another decade of clinton wars. the political pettiness and nastiness that exploded during the clinton era was the fundamental obstacle to fundamental change. hillary's one word explanation for the persistence of the status quo was republicans. obama's one word explanation was washington. the endless than cycles, insult industries and platitudes that made tough choices and common sense compromise impossible. as a symbol and a participant hillary was inextricably linked to that washington gridlock machine. the bickering and parsing, the turtle boomer driven real mitigation of the 60s. she could never make a credible we are one people speech or bring people together to solve big problems. she tried and failed in 1994 with her husband's health care plan. the case for hillary was she knew how to fight republicans. she was comfortable in the oh. the case for obama was he could move politics b

." the september jobs report is in. and the numbers are better than expected. way better. the unemployment rate below 8% for the first time since january 2009. it's good news for president obama, after his underwhelming performance in wednesday' debate. and bad news for mitt romney, and his conspiracy-minded supporters on the republican right. more on that in a moment. according to the bureau of labor statistics, unemployment dropped to 7.8% last month down .3 of a percent since august. employers added 114,000 new jobs. including 104 in the private sector and 10,000 in the public sector which had seen months of steady decline. in july's number revised to 181,000 with an additional 40,000 new jobs. president obama shared the news with a cheering crowd at a campaign appearance in fairfax virginia. >> obama: this morning we found out that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest level since i office. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> eliot: not if

or each stage of the liberal advance, i thought it better today to concentrate on obama's own appropriation of them. i think my book is the first to put the story of american liberalism between two covers. and to take seriously barack obama's culminating or any rate critical part in it. now to begin with, obama calls "hunger games" progressive. he said this in the 2008 campaign as did hillary clinton interestingly they would prefer to be called progressive than liberal. now who are the progressives? well, following woodrow wilson, the progressives movement progressive school, literal life believed in the inevitable of human progress. and by literally, i mean, literally. as opposed to what 90 percent of speakers mean figuratively.

since the conventions that people do feel a little bit better about the commiff. that was helping president obama until the denver debate. now this race is tight and very much in flux. gwen: let's talk about the trend lines. the president can still claim 31 months of unsbrurmented job growth but mitt romney just made that point about how if different things were true this would be 11%. does he have a point? >> well, you can take statistics and play with them all you want. yes, if people weren't leaving, if people weren't dropping out of the job search process then there would be more people in it. ok. but what's important is the number. and the number is good for obama in the psychological way and also if you look historically. what we've just been through in the past year is one of the -- the changes are tiny, but one of the longest declines in the unemployment rate since 1984, so that's a very good trend for the president and public opinion polls have been sending these mixed signals. the most recent "wall street journal" poll had the wrong track number sky high, 60%. but of tho
think that obama has an advantage in that more of his money is in -- is in a wallet from which he can spend easily, get the lowest rate, and control the message better than can romney. lou: not concerned about the fundraising? >> oh, i'm concerned about it. i think it's a real problem because, look, you have not talked about the big, you know, the big gorilla in the room, and that is organized labor, which will pump $400 million to $450 million into the race like four years ago. obama here, romney here, outside groups on behalf of romney evening it up, and labor comes in like this. the president will out spend mitt romney. lou: when you talk about the gorilla there, it's not just union money, but ground forces going to work. are you satisfied that governor romney has a sufficient ground force ready to meet what will be a daunting ground operation on the part of the president obama? >> well, i don't know state-by-state, but i have talked to some of the people involved in some of these states who are old political hands and know what's going on. in ohio, they are already blowing through

looked so much better in comparison. for mr. obama, unemployment peaked in 2009 at 10%, now three years later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? ncy?eporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. negh unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today he mentioned the drop not once but twice starting in virginia. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office.

the transcript yesterday. and i actually thought on paper obama looks a little better. there is one section which is worse. which was the closing argument, the two minute closing argument which is just terrible, just really bad 2 minutes, for a closing argument, that is something you can script and really think about. and they really got to have a concise argument, here's what by am going to do in the fix hour years. here is why you need me. when you look at the romney closing arguments t is very contrast, he will do this, i will do that, the obama thing was just a muddle. >> but if he didn't do what he needed to do before 60 or 70 million people, mark, can he make up that ground? i mean you got the vice presidential debate coming up next week. how does he make up for what he-- missed opportunity. >> well, staircase humor in the debate he has to say, did -- he should have said, and mitt romney, are you right, he not appearing before 60 or 70 million people. the presidentdid not play to offense or defense wednesday night. he didn't defend himself against charges that mitt romney made of his admini
barack obama supporter would he have done a better job. >> i think the two of them are unrelated. but michael cauldron had an interesting point. leher did not go to new media or didn't take any crowd sourcing questions. he didn't ask people what he ought to ask. that is who decided by himself. >> jon: it was mostly the liberal media that trashed leher's performance and thought he was going to be unfair. >> steven colbert called him the most boring man on evening news. that is something what we saw. i have to agree with rick and with ellen. i think he understood that the two men wanted to engage and he stepped out of the way. that was a good thing. >> the lincoln-douglas debates were between lincoln and douglas. there were no moderator. everybody would like to say, that would be a better model. they tried it that th time. now, the media are blaming leher. one wrote last week that the media is part of team. romney is playing against the democratic team and media team and the fact that leher wasn't a tackler he is now getting beat up for it. >> jon: the ratings were huge, 67 million
, obama 47% and romney 46%. you know the state better than most. what do you think romney has to do to tip it in his favor in. >> well, here's what he better not do. ten days ago he was behind. he came from behind and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net wor
